Forecast

Talk Of The Town (9/5), Hesamanofhisword (2/1), Fitness Du Sud (7/2), Friary Rock (4/1), Little Lady Lu (13/2), Dancing Jeremy (25/1), Snugsborough Lucy (28/1), Bar Room Bore (50/1), Raleagh Flora (50/1), Take All (125/1), Getaway Jewel (125/1), Roscomroe (150/1), Sub Rocco (150/1)

Verdict

A weak maiden hurdle that could go the way of TALK OF THE TOWN, who won his sole start in bumpers and should learn from his encouraging initial effort over hurdles when fourth at Galway. Friary Rock is a danger on his best form and Fitness du Sod appeals as the type to take to hurdling, so he's not discounted.
